The Hanoverian Breed society has decided to split its stallion licensing committee into two, per discipline for dressage and show jumping, and welcomed Hannes Baumgart and Markus Beerbaum onto the new licensing committees.
The Hanoverian stallion keepers and rearers met on 29 May 2020 and decided they wanted change in the licensing procedure. Up to this date, the Hanoverian society had a single licensing committee that decided on both dressage and show jumping, but this will change for the 2020 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing.
Breeding director Ulrich Hahne and Rhinelander representative Martin Spoo will remain the only two fixtures in the committees for both disciplines.
The dressage licensing committee will further include new comer Hannes Baumgart, alongside Heike Kemmer and Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen.
"For me the appointment to the licensing commission closes a circle," said Hannes Baumgart. "With my family I have prepared many stallions over the years, then I was a guest rider at stallion performance tests for a long time. I therefore see my appointment to the licensing commission as recognition of my work, and I am very pleased about that".
For the show jumping committee, the new comer is Markus Beerbaum, who will join Martin Klintworth and Jörg Münzner at the licensing.
